Big bear

Summary: The Cree tribe of Western Canada were a happy people living a prosperous and harmonious existence. But in the late 1800s, the government proposed a treaty to Chief Big Bear that required them to take a reserve and lose the land that gave them their freedom. Big Bear, a gentle yet stubborn leader, refused the offer. While he continued to resist the government, the younger Cree men started to retaliate. Big Bear tried to warn them of the seriousness of their actions ... to no avail. Pushed to the breaking point, the Cree warriors launch a deadly attack at Frog Lake. With vengeful army troops relentlessly in pursuit, the Cree know that another even more bloody battle will follow.
